The Book 'Iḥyāʾ ʿUlūm al-Dīn in the Scale of the Scholars and Historians
A collection of statements from the Scholars, past and present, concerning the infamous work of Abū Ḥāmid al-Ghazzālī: Ihyāʾ ʿUlūm al-Dīn. A work filled with lies upon the Messenger of Allāh and distortions of the true Religion of Allāh the Glorified and Exalted.
When he wrote his book, he called it Ihyāʾ ʿUlūm al-Dīn, and talked about the sciences of the states of things and ways of the Ṣūfīs in it, but he was neither well acquainted with them nor well informed about them, so he fell headlong, and thus did not fall either among the scholars of the Muslims or within the conditions of the Ṣūfī ascetics.
Translation by Abū al-Ḥasan Dāwūd al-Briṭānī
